Excellent chemistry teacher. Works hard to explain a difficult subject to the students. Always willing to help after school or during lunch.

Also had him for TJ summer chem. Knows his stuff (but doesn't really explain well), good guy, has horrible jokes. Make sure you ask a lot of questions if you don't understand something.

Hard teacher, but fair. He really tries to help. Said it is not ethical to TALK about telepathy. Said if anyone is telepathic, they probably feel a lot of pain. Seems to try hard.

I don't get Chem at all but he really tries to get you to understand it. Nicest guy. He's a genius in real life (did important research in his career) but he truly loves teaching.
